- Update of the March 2019 article -

The S97 chassis (together with the M99 and the M92) is one of the flagship products of DC Racing, a manufacturing company founded by the 5-time karting World Champion Danilo Rossi. The name of the chassis celebrates, in fact, one of Rossi’s World Titles: the event won in Salbris (hence the “S” of the name) in 1997

The original chassis homologation is from 2012 and has already been extended for another 3 years in the 2018 season. The 2019 model, therefore, does not have additional improvements to show off, as for the aesthetics there has been some exciting new items. The new graphics, compared to the past versions, have more space for bright red while reducing the amount of white while the gold-colored details have been taken off completely. As for the rest of the kart it has the same features as that of the previous version, which you will be able to rediscover after having seen the 360° images of the 2019 model in the following slides.
